Re: [T3] 67 PIGLET


Tires, bearings, tie-rod ends, ball joints, even a stuck brake pad on
a warped rotor could do this.  I've had more trouble with the upper
torsion bar adjustment, myself.  Check the upper arms, if you can
shuck them back and forth in the axle housing, look at the torsion bar
adjustment bolt on the right side.  The procedÂ

There's a set screw on the left end that is supposed to dig into the
surface of the bar and keep it from moving.  It digs in, all right,
but cuts a groove.  On mine, I had to flip the bar and start fresh on
the other side, the groove was so long, I couldn't get the adjustment
bolt tightened enough to keep from shimmying, it bottomed out.  Rather
poor design, I thought.
